The western shore of the bay contains two smaller beaches north of Peake Point. The first (beach 733) is a curving, east facing 1.2 km long sand beach, fronted by rock reefs apart from the southern end which has 300 m of open sand beach, backed by a low foredune and small dry lagoon.
These are all relatively safe beaches under normal low wave conditions, with the sandy beaches preferable to those fronted by rocks and reefs. Only the Picnic Point and main Peake Bay beaches are used by the general public. A fatal shark attack occurred in the shallows of the bay in the 1980s.
Excellent fishing off the many rocks and reefs along the shore.
Nine little visited beaches offering no facilities and usually calm conditions.
